Galaxy Season Ends, Fire Still Burn

Chicago Fire 1 LA Galaxy 0

Beckham is making $6.5 million this season and Blanco making $2.7 million. Thorrington, the game winning scorer, was waived by the Fire in March, and trained with LA Galaxy in pre-season. He signed with the Fire just last month. Thorrington was once a reserve with Manchester United when Beckham was the teams star.

Thorrington recalled his days as a young player at United with Beckham.

"I played the same position as him on the youth team and reserves. So it was funny being on the same field as him," Thorrington said.
